Very good application and nice to see someone from the USA. You have my vote.
Good application and Geo location, a yes from me.
If it’s hosted, that’s not colo.
Colo is your own box co-located at a DC.
Hosted is when you use a hosting service (Digtal Ocean for example).
Which is it?
I vote yes
Geo location and a good application gets my vote.
